Why Are So Many Bad Things Happening To America?

Have you ever wondered why things have been going so badly for the United States in recent years?  Our economy is falling apart, we have been plagued with heat, drought and endless natural disasters, our cities are absolutely crumbling, we just keep getting involved in even more wars and Americans are more anxious and more overweight than ever before.  So why are so many bad things happening to America?  Why do we lead the world in so many bad categories?  Why does nothing seem to be going right?  Are we under some kind of a curse?  It is almost as if we have entered a “perfect storm” that just keeps getting worse.  In the old days it would seem like something bad would happen to the United States every once in a while, but now massive problems seem to be hitting us in rapid fire fashion.  At this point, many Americans have “crisis fatigue” because our problems never seem to end.  Each new crisis just seems to overlap with all of the other problems that are still going on.  So why is this happening, and what is our country going to look like if our problems continue to multiply at this rate?

The following are some of the bad things that are happening to America right now….

Heat And Drought

This summer, thousands of new high temperature records have been set all over the country, and weather conditions are much drier than normal in most of the nation.

In fact, the drought that we are experiencing right now is being called the worst drought in more than 50 years.  More than 1,000 counties in the United States have already been declared to be official disaster areas, and there is no end to the drought in sight.

All over America this drought is killing the corn and this is causing the price of corn to soar.  The following is from a recent Financial Post article….

Chicago Board of Trade corn for December delivery has soared 54% since mid-June, reaching a contract high of US$7.78 on Monday and approaching its record price near US$8.

Soybeans for November delivery soared to a new contract high of US$15.97 before slipping back a few cents.

Crop watchers were alarmed that corn rated poor-to-very poor jumped to 38%, versus 30% last week and 11% a year ago.

The record high for the price of corn is just $7.99 a bushel.  Many believe that the price of corn will soon blow well past that price and could eventually reach $10 a bushel.

Unfortunately, there is not much hope on the horizon.  It is being projected that these very hot and very dry conditions will persist well into August.

Wildfires

The extreme heat has also been responsible for an unusual number of wildfires in the western United States this year.  The recent horrific wildfires in Colorado made headlines all over the nation.

Sadly, these wildfires are part of a rising trend.  The truth is that the 6 worst years for wildfires in the United States ever recorded have all happened since the year 2000.

So what is causing this to happen?

What is causing so much of the country to go up in flames?

Tornadoes

Earlier this year, many areas of the heartland of America were absolutely ripped to shreds by very powerful tornadoes.

More tornadoes happen in the United States than anywhere else in the world, and unfortunately we have seen a tremendous amount of tornado activity in this country in recent years.

In 2009, there were 1146 tornadoes in the United States.

In 2010, there were 1282 tornadoes in the United States.

In 2011, there were 1691 tornadoes in the United States.

Overall, 2011 was the worst year for natural disasters in U.S. history.

So where will 2012 rank when everything is all said and done?

Fukushima

Radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster will be affecting Americans for many years to come.

Most Americans do not think much about Fukushima anymore, but the truth is that Fukushima is still putting out a tremendous amount of radiation, and that radiation travels eastward towards us.

A couple of months ago, one reporter discovered that radiation levels in rain falling on Los Angeles were five times above normal.

But we don’t hear about this in the mainstream media, do we?

One recent study concluded that the highest concentration of Fukushima radiation in the Pacific Ocean will eventually be just off the west coast of the United States.

But our “authorities” tell us that there is no reason to be concerned, so most Americans will continue to ignore the incredible tragedy that continues to unfold at Fukushima.

If you are not sure what to think about what is going on at Fukushima, perhaps the following statistic will get your attention….

Recent tests have shown that 36 percent of all children living in the Fukushima Prefecture in Japan have abnormal growths on their thyroid glands.  After the Chernobyl disaster, less than 2 percent of all children living in the area surrounding Chernobyl were found to have abnormal growths on their thyroid glands.

Economic Collapse

The last recession was the worst economic crisis that America has faced since the Great Depression, and our economy has never even come close to recovering from it.

Now we are on the verge of another global financial meltdown that appears likely to be even worse than the last one.

Peter Schiff, the president of Euro Pacific Capital, says that the U.S. economy is headed for a crisis that will make the recession of 2008 and 2009 look like a walk in the park.

So what is going to happen if the economy goes into the toilet and unemployment skyrockets much higher than it is now?

That is frightening to think about.

Poverty Explosion

Even during this “economic recovery”, poverty in America continues to soar.

For example, since Barack Obama has been president the number of Americans on food stamps has risen from 32 million to 46 million.

Overall, 49 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives benefits from the federal government according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  That is an all-time record high.

The Death Of American Cities

The United States once had dozens of great manufacturing cities that were the envy of the entire globe.

Today, many of those cities have degenerated into crime-ridden, drug infested hellholes.

Things have gotten so bad in Detroit that thousands of homes are literally being torn down in an effort to “make the city safer”….

As the next step in an April deal between financially strapped Detroit and the state of Michigan, Governor Rick Snyder is finalizing a plan to tear down thousands of abandoned houses in a bid to make the city safer.

Detroit has been hard-hit over the past four decades by a steep drop in population, a steadily eroding tax base and crippling budget deficits, resulting in countless barren streets punctuated by vacant lots and burned-out buildings.

Increase In Crime

Have you noticed that crime is on the rise in many of our communities?

The murder rate in Chicago is up 38 percent so far this year, and justifiable homicide rose by 79 percent in Detroit during 2011.

Criminals are getting bolder and are doing things that we have not seen before.

For example, on Saturday night a mob of 300 teens invaded a Wal-Mart in Jacksonville, Florida and went absolutely wild.  They started stealing stuff, breaking stuff and throwing food at each other without any concern for what the security guards would do.

When have we ever seen stuff like this happen in America before?

America already has the highest incarceration rate in the world and the largest total prison population on the entire planet by a very wide margin.

How many more people do we plan to lock up?

Meanwhile, even many Americans that are not considered to be “criminals” are becoming very cold-hearted.  Just check out what happened in Arlington, Virginia recently.  A video surveillance camera captured footage of numerous people walking right past a man that had just been hit by a car and was dying on the sidewalk.  He was lying face down and bleeding and nobody even went up to him to see if he was okay.

If you were in a similar situation, would you stop to help that man?

Gang Violence

All over America gangs are taking over local communities.

According to the FBI, there are now a total of 1.4 million gang members living in America.  Just since 2009, that number has risen by 40 percent.

To get an idea of how deeply Mexican drug cartels have infiltrated our cities, just check out the maps on this article.

As I wrote about the other day, there are only 200 police officers in Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit to go up against an estimated 100,000 gang members living in the city of Chicago right now.

With numbers such as those, it is easy to see how violence in many of our cities could spiral out of control very, very quickly.

War

The United States continues to get pulled into more wars, and the conflicts that we are already involved in never seem to end.

Just today, 22 NATO supply trucks were destroyed in Afghanistan.  The war in Afghanistan has already lasted much longer than World War II did, and there is no end in sight.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama has gotten the U.S. military involved in conflicts in Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and a whole bunch of other places.  The following is from a recent Wired article….

The center of the US drone war has shifted to Yemen, where 23 American strikes have killed an estimated 155 people so far this year. But you wouldn’t know about it — or about the cruise missile attacks, or about the US commando teams in Yemen — by reading the report the White House sent to Congress about US military activities around the globe. Instead, there’s only the blandest acknowledgement of “direct action” in Yemen, “against a limited number of [al-Qaida] operatives and senior leaders.”

The report, issued late Friday, is the first time the United States has publicly, officially acknowledged the operations in Yemen and in nearby Somalia that anyone with internet access could’ve told you about years ago. But the report doesn’t just fail to admit the extent of the shadow war that America is waging in the region. It’s borderline legal — at best. The War Powers Resolution of 1973 requires the president to inform Congress about any armed conflicts America is engaged in. Friday’s report isn’t just uninformative about Yemen. It doesn’t even mention the US campaign in Pakistan, even though the Defense Secretary says America is “at war” there.

So what is next?

Well, there are endless headlines warning that war with Syria is coming.

Other headlines warn that war with Iran is coming.

Where will this all end?

Anxiety Epidemic

Americans today are more unhappy and more anxious than ever before.

The following is from a recent Business Insider article….

According to a recent World Health Organization study, 31 percent of Americans are likely to suffer from an anxiety problem at some point during their lifetimes — compared to 25.3 percent of those in Colombia, and 24.6 percent in New Zealand, the countries that rank second and third. You’d think people in developing or unstable states — those preoccupied with concerns farther down on the Maslow Scale — would be more anxious than we are. Not so. “According to the 2002 World Mental Health Survey, people in developing-world countries such as Nigeria are up to five times less likely to show clinically significant anxiety levels than Americans, despite having more basic life-necessities to worry about,” writes Taylor Clark, author of Nerve: Poise Under Pressure, Serenity Under Stress, and the Brave New Science of Fear and Cool. “What’s more, when these less-anxious developing-world citizens emigrate to the United States, they tend to get just as anxious as Americans.

“The United States has transformed into the planet’s undisputed worry champion,” Clark adds.

Obesity Epidemic

Of all the major industrialized nations, the United States is the most obese, and a recent Gallup survey found that Americans are more concerned about our obesity epidemic than ever before.

And nobody can deny that we are getting fatter.

Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese.

Today, approximately 36 percent of all Americans are obese.

Drug Addiction Epidemic

The United States has a higher percentage of drug addicts than any other major industrialized nation does.

We love to escape the pain of our every day lives.

At this point, the United States has the highest rate of illegal drug use in the entire world.

The United States also has a higher percentage of people addicted to prescription drugs than anyone else does.

So what does that say about us exactly?

Child Abuse Epidemic

In the United States, we treat our children very badly.

Sadly, there are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the United States every single year, and the United States has the highest child abuse death rate on the entire globe.

Teen Pregnancy Epidemic

When our kids grow up they tend to be very sexually active as teens.

Amazingly, the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate on the entire planet.

And all of this sexual activity is rapidly spreading disease among our teens.  According to one study, one out of every four teen girls in the United States has at least one sexually transmitted disease.

Divorce Epidemic

We like to make movies and television shows about families, but the truth is that the family structure in the United States has been breaking down for a very long time.

Today, the United States has the highest divorce rate in the world by a very wide margin.

Some example for the rest of the world we are, eh?

16 Trillion Dollar National Debt

Right now the U.S. national debt is $15,884,155,929,632.05.

We will shortly cross the 16 trillion dollar mark.

This is the greatest debt in the history of the world and it is beyond criminal that we plan to pass this debt on to future generations.

Our greed has destroyed the future for our children and our grandchildren and yet we continue to borrow trillions more because we just can’t help ourselves.

Political Nightmare

On top of everything else, we have a horrifying lack of leadership here in America.

Our last four presidents have been four of the worst presidents in U.S. history, and in 2012 we are faced with an incredibly depressing choice at the polls.

Is Barack Obama really the best that the Democrats can do?

The American people elected an incompetent con man to the highest office in the land.  Virtually every decision that he makes is wrong and virtually everything that he has tried to do while in office has been a failure.

The Republicans dislike Barack Obama so much that they picked the candidate most like Obama out of the entire Republican field to go up against Obama.

What kind of sense does that make?

Is Mitt Romney really the best that the Republicans can do?

Right now the best selling point that Republicans have for Romney is this….

“You better vote for him or you will get another four years of Obama”.

But Mitt Romney would certainly also be a bad president and would lead us down the exact same road that Obama has.

This fall, Americans will either get to vote for the worst president in U.S. history or another guy who will almost certainly be one of the worst presidents in U.S. history.

How depressing is that?

So as this nation continues to fall apart, we are guaranteed to have an absolutely horrible leader in the White House.

Perhaps we are really cursed.

So do you have an opinion about why so many bad things are happening to America?

Please feel free to post a comment with your opinion below….

  • i’vegivenup

    Michael:

    These things are happening because we have drifted away from God and forgotten (or ignore) His rules (i.e. The Bible). You know….The Ten Commandments…the teachings of Jesus, etc. God will make all of us responsible for ruining the environment which we were given to protect not destroy. (i.e. global warming…Fukishima…polluted waters, etc). Greed (love of money and material possessions) and the decaying of ethics and morals has undermined all that WAS good about America. Additionally…humans are self destructive and will continue to FAIL AND DESTROY EACH OTHER. We are spinning out of control….

    • lee

      I am inclined to agree with you. I am a believer in Christ and do think it is possible whatever blessing God has granted the USA, he may have rescinded as the USA has turned away from many things of God that I will not list as every person may have a different opinion on what those are. But especially considering those natural disasters that have affected the US(heat, drought, wildfires, violent storms); I could see God allowing those to happen. But it is possible it’s just the US’s time to get hit. Russia had huge wildfires last year, the far east had tsunamis years ago and it’s possible that if the US managed its national parks better; the fires could have been contained.

      Where I’m skeptical that God has a direct hand are issues like debt, breakdowns in the culture, government and foreign policy. The US has been trending towards being irresponsible in its debt, government, culture and defense for years much like europe has; if it doesnt reverse that trend it may become another england; still tough; but no longer able to influence anyone by itself.

        part of the American exceptionalism lie is that god favors us

        • Maxx

          No;

          Part of American exceptionalism is that:
          * Americans discovered flight
          * Americans invented manufacturing
          * Americans invented more things used everyday around the world than anyone else
          * America was founded on the Judeo-Christian standard of ethics. No other religious world-view could have ever conceived of the Republic our Founders put into motion.
          * American medicine has saved countless millions of lives
          * The automobile

          Not enough room to list it all.

          Perhaps the problem is that we’re just not exceptional – anymore.

  • eagleprepper1

    Washington’s inaugural address clearly stated that any nation which has been dedicated to God and blessed by God and then turns away from God will reap the consequences of their actions. Anyone who doubts that this nation was founded upon Judo/Christian beliefs needs to do a little research in order to discover the truth that this nation was not only founded upon those truths, but was clearly dedicated to God. (You might want to take a look at http://www.unlimitedglory.org/txtonenation.htm)
    2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us that if we as a nation will humble ourselves,pray, seek God’s face and repent from our current ways, He will heal our land. Unfortunately, since 9/11 we have made the same mistake that the Israelites made in Isaiah 9:10. We have thumbed our nose at God, and said in no uncertain terms that we will make a comeback without Him. Currently we are paying the price for that and will continue to do so until we return to our Christian roots

    • hbeachrealist

      Plus, 9/11 was an obvious inside job. 9/11 was a US government operation, not a Muslim operation. This lie killed 3,000 Americans that day and led to the death of over 1,000,000 Middle Eastern citizen. It also has cost the American citizens well over one trillion dollars.

      9/11 was a government operation and is being covered up by American politicians and American media. It is so obvious, but the majority of Americans cannot deal with the truth of 9/11. A true Christian would be able to look at the facts of 9/11 and realize that we were lied to. And God told us not to lie.

      It’s all coming down.

    • r.bitting

      One of the best sermons ever given on this subject was given by John MacArthur and can be accessesd at his ministry’s website ” Grace to You “. The message is titled ” When God abandons a nation “. You can find it in his archives.

      Judeo-Christian? Please, leave the Talmud out of this, okay? Or, better yet, read the Talmud yourself and see what it says about Christ (boiling in his own excrement for eternity, son of a whore, Balaam, etc.)

      It isn’t that Israel controls this country. It is that too many Christians (mostly Christian Zionists, who make up almost 50 percent of Christians) forsake their fellow Christians (such as Palestinian Christians) because they are afraid they will “curse” Israel if they don’t. I really do not think God likes the idea of favoring unbelievers over believers, but that is what Christian Zionists do. And you folks want to know why the USA is cursed! Favoring physical Israel over God’s spiritual Israel may have something to do with it!

      Repent, Christian Zionists!

  • r.bitting

    Deuteronomy ch. 28 gives anyone who’s willing to invest 5 minutes to read it, a comprehensive description of what awaits the nation that turns it’s back on God. Anyone who reads this passage of scripture is in essence, reading the future of America. In fact, many of the judgments described in this chapter have already or are currently being experienced in America presently. If, after reading Deuteronomy ch. 28, you still think America is just hit some tough times and that everything will be o.k again soon, and that God’s blessings are still raining down on America you are a fool. Bye Bye, miss American pie.

    At the rotten heart of our economic collapse is the myth of the home-owning middle-class quality person.

    Most of the “bad” governments have the good sense to maintain power by appealing, however nominally, to a genuine majority of their citizens–the good Muslims, the good Germans, the loyal subjects of the king, whatever. Ours, by contrast, appeals to a small minority (the middle class) and simply tells everyone else that they belong to it, contrary to seemingly-obvious fact. They’ve kept this con going by filling our heads with sufficient propaganda to genuinely convince most people that they get more money than they actually do. Now, however, more and more people are realizing that they do not belong to the class that the government claims to represent–and subsequently going mad.

  • Tatiana Covington

    It’s all just chance. God has nothing to do with it.

    • A.S.

      Then what are the chances that any one country in the world is suffering from so many things all at the same time. Besides the drought, which may end up being the worst in U.S. history, the U.S. is #1 in almost every negative thing: drugs, murder, drug addiction, prisons, pedophiles, overweight, depression, etc. Huh? I would say like maybe 1 in a billion.

  • http://nEquals1Health.com Howard

    The obesity epidemic is directly traceable to politicians and bureaucrats who know less than nothing about diet or nutrition telling the American public what to eat. Starting with trans-fats, which were touted as being healthier than natural fats — up until it was shown that trans-fats are actually metabolic toxins. Then came cheap corn. Corn is a good way to make farm animals morbidly obese very quickly for market, and it works that way on a lot of people. The third, and worst by far, was the development of frankenwheat, the 2-foot-tall semi-dwarf “wheat” that has essentially no genetic resemblance to real wheat, but was pushed onto an unsuspecting public as “healthy whole grains”.

    The feedback mechanism in all of this is MONEY. If you are lean, fit, and healthy, you aren’t worth anything at all to the “medical” and pharma industries. But if you are fat and suffer from chronic illness, you are a gold mine. So there is absolutely no incentive to correct the dietary disinformation fed to us over the last 3 decades.

    [The United States continues to get pulled into more wars…]

    The US doesn’t get “pulled into” wars. That line makes it sound like the US is the eternal victim, when instead it is almost invariably the US that starts and prolongs these wars, which are bathed in self-serving lies from one end to the other. See:

    http://davidswanson.org/warisalie

    As the late MG Smedley Butler said in “War is a Racket,” the only way to smash this racket is to take the profit out of war. America’s wars have become extremely profitable for some very influential people, and when that happens you can rest assured you’re going to get a lot more of them.

    Guy Odom wrote about this in America’s Man on Horseback. He compared the 1904(?) Galveston, TX hurricane that completely leveled the city and how the Texans rebuilt without a single penny of federal money with 1992’s Hurricane Andrew, which came ashore and flattened South Florida. Within 24 hours of that storm, people were rioting because the gov’t hadn’t arrived yet to save them.

    Odom explained that when a society is strong and resilient, it accepts these natural challenges (hurricanes, earthquakes, tidal waves, fires, etc) with a stoic attitude that stuff happens. Look at San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake-they rebuilt with vigor. By comparison, when a society is old, weak, and tottering, these same challenges become catastrophic disasters. You get the riots after Hurricane Andrew. You get the anarchy after Katrina and the lingering failure to recover and rebuild vast areas of New Orleans.

    These problems we face-fires, drought, earthquakes, hurricanes, wind storms, floods, etc-they’re nothing new. Nothing has changed. WE HAVE CHANGED!

    Our attitude and our confidence has changed and we see these random, natural events as judgement passed on us, as proof we’re culpable for the world’s problems (man-made global warming), and reason to believe we’re nearly overwhelmed by circumstances beyond our control.

    Our ancestors as recently as a couple generations ago were much less fragile than we are today. They accepted disaster and picked up the pieces. (i.e. Galveston and San Fran.)

    Sure, times are bad. Things are tough. We have lots of problems. But none of this is reason to fear our future. None of this is really unique to this time.

    In fact, dig into US history and you’ll see that in 1812, on the Eve of the War of 1812, the USA was as shattered and apathetic and divided as it is now. Politicians were hated, the parties were at each others’ throats, the economy was in a doldrums, and people wondered just what good the USA was.

    The war gave everyone a much-needed shot in the arm and put the USA back on its feet. Even though accomplished nearly nothing in that war, our people united together behind the idea of America and found a pride that lasts to this day.

    It could all happen again, too. We could be just around the corner from a renewal, a rejuvenation, of America’s can-do spirit.

    What we need to do is dig deep, find our balls, come together, and start dealing with our problems like adults. Unfortunately, I think we’ll see a lot more trouble before we start to come together again, if we ever do.

    Odom was clear that times like these can help jumpstart a country for another 250 years of success and accomplishment, or they can seal the end of a tottering nation, leaving little more than museums and crumbling monuments to former greatness-think Italy.

    I am not against praying to God for salvation; however, I am against saying that our country’s ills are because the people have turned their backs against God. These ills have been felt in countries where and in ages when people were more religious. People prayed then, too, and accused others of bringing this ill upon the people. This thinking lead to the brutalization and murder of the others. I am hoping that reason prevails before we let this thinking lead us off the path of the righteous and onto the path of the wicked.

    Michal, today it has been reported that a fourth California city, Compton, may declare bankruptcy within the next few months. They are looking at running out of money by September 1st, and the city is looking at a budget that is $2 million dollars in the red by summer’s end.

    Michael,
    Here we go again. I sent you links to Dutchsinse’s site where he accumulates PROOF that the drought is caused as a false flag and you are ignoring the facts!
    I can show you hundreds of weather modification patents, many to cause drought, but they could very easily cause it to rain!!!! The first patent for cloud seeding and rain production dates back to 1891!!! and with today’s technologies, the newer patents are even more effective.

    Please look into the links I sent you and call Dutchsinse. And above all, stop repeating the same nonesense until yoy research the subject properly.
    Please review this link. It is 121 pages of FACTS and PROOF of weather modification accumulated by Dutchsinse with the help of whistleblowers.

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/83860806/Want-to-Know-About-Chem-Trails-HAARP-VLF-UHF-and-Weather-Modification

    Please help expose this instead of repeating the same disinformation.

    I can understand the economic downturn due to the banking scam. I can understand the weather due to natural occurances simultaneously happening. I wish it could be explained to me why America has to be involved with fighting wars in so many countries that did not attack the homeland. These wars are expensive in finance and manpower. Will there ever be an end to them?

  • Richard

    Stop it with the God nonsense (comments above). Americans have behaved in an outrageously irresponsible way for decades. The chickens are simply coming home to roost. Americans always did feel they were a cut above everyone else. They started out by trying to reformulate the English language. They thought they could do a better job than those who created the language way back. Then they gave up because it was too daunting a task. So they turned their attention to dumbing everyone down and playing at being the immature, overgrown children they really are. If ever there was a more pathetic bunch of people on planet earth I have yet to hear about them. God,indeed! Give me a break…

  • liberranter

    I think there is a lot of truth behind the biblical explanations cited by regular posters. HOWEVER, there are other (probably related) factors at work as well, including:

    1. The Death of the American Character. The rugged individualism and self-responsibility that led Americans to engineer their independence and to lead productive lives and do great things is dead, probably never to return. More than 100 years of “progessive” political philosophy embedded in political, economic, and social institutions at all levels has destroyed this trait in the majority. Today, everybody, whether they subscribe to the faux philosophies of “conservative/right-winger” or “liberal/left-winger,” expects “the government”/”everyone else” to solve their problems for them.

    2. Intrusive, Paternalistic Government. Either the primary cause of or the primary result of Number 1 above, depending on your point of view; it’s definitely a “chicken or the egg” paradigm. Even if there was to be a nascent revival of the American Character, the meddling busybodies that make up every branch and level of government –and who represent the attitudes held by the bulk of the Amoricon Sheeple– would be sure to smother it in its infancy.

    3. The Inability of the Average Person to Think Critically or Independently. Again, either a direct result of or the primary cause of items 1 and 2 above, take your pick. Do you see how all of this is interrelated?

    4. An Ignorant, Insular, and Uneducated* Population That is Nothing Less Than an International Disgrace. Once again, tied directly to items 1 through 3 above. That at least one third of the population is both borderline functionally illiterate AND functionally innumerate should supply at least a partial (and obvious) answer to the question posed by the title of this article.

    [* Very few people in Amerika today, by the way, have been educated; the vast majority have merely been indoctrinated.]

    5. The Complete Abandonment of Common Sense in Every Aspect of Life. I would dare say that this is probably the root cause of ALL of the other factors that I’ve mentioned and that Michael mentions in the article. That Amerika insists on bashing its head against a figurative brick wall, screaming and raging that it is “the Great Exceptional Nation” to whom logic and common sense do not apply, as it goes straight down in flames, probably spells doom more clearly than anything else. That the simple self-evident truth of Einstein’s definition of insanity refuses to gain traction after over a century of painful and expensive evidence really sums it all up better than anything else.

    The more spiritually minded among the readership here would probably say “REPENT!” Fat chance, where the majority is concerned. “BOAKYAG!” would probably carry more instructive and practical weight as advice.

    Why Are So Many Bad Things Happening To America?

    Well that is easy–conservatives and their destructive policies. God is punishing us for following the selfish ayn rand worshiping conservative atheist.

      Wow, you’ve turned your hatred into something akin to superstition. Well done, Gary!

      • Gary2

        Thanks!

  • Justa Guy

    This country has turned from the true God, and turned to the “me” god. Just about everything bad that happens that man has some control over is because people have chosen to worship the “me” god, rather than obey the true, living God.

    The rich get richer by cheating everyone else, all for “me”.

    Child aborters say the loose sex feels good to “me”, and a baby will be a burden to “me”.

    Divorcees don’t like the spouse restraining “my” freedom to have or feel any pleasure or experience with anyone, anytime.

    Gays have difficulty with engaging the opposite sex, so “I” will get sexual gratification in a way that’s easier for “me”.

    Criminals want things for “me” that they can’t afford, or refuse to work for, so they turn to crime to get it instead.

    Drug addicts want what feels good to “me”.

    Obese people don’t want to exercise, because that’s hard work for “me”.

    Right or wrong doesn’t matter to most Americans anymore, only what pleases “me”.

    • MB92083

      “…Gays have difficulty with engaging the opposite sex, so “I” will get sexual gratification in a way that’s easier for “me”….”

      are you actually that ignorant???

      ban abortion? no, I don’t believe in slavery for women

      • Maxx

        But;

        Therefore you believe in murdering unborn children. Interesting…

        • Gay Veteran

          hey Maxx, how many unwanted babies have you adopted?

          none? then shut up

          • Teresa

            Well Gay Vet, I have adopted two unwanted children and I think abortion is murder. Would you have me shut up as well? Having a child does not enslave a woman, killing a child enslaves her for life.

      • Young but Wise

        Getting pregnant is not ‘slavery’ to women, it is there punishment for not being responsible. I agree with Justa Guy, people do think things are about themselves and when people, like yourself, get told that they can’t be who they want to be or that they are not as free as they wish to be, they burst out witht the name calling, the insults, and oh-so-not-hot temper. People need to stop being so selfish, take some responsibility for their actions, and go read the Bible. That will be the only way we will get out of this crises that our country has fell into

        • Lalune

          I wonder if you believe it is ‘their punishment’ when they’re raped. If you’re going to try to say that it’s selfish to try to protect yourself, you should look to your Bible for the answers to why one would wish to do so. Most of our ‘rights’ as U.S. citizens came directly from Christian ideals, made by Christian men.

          The idea of freedom does come to mind when one thinks of OUR country, so it does make sense that one would be upset when they’re told they’re not free to make their own choices or be who they want to be. Whether they deserve to have what they have or not, it is what this country was made to give them.

          Stating that Christianity will save us is like stating that the government will provide for us. We ARE the government, and therefore we MUST provide for ourselves. We are “governed by the people, for the people” and therefore should understand that change is only possible when WE act upon it. If we trust someone else to do our job, we’ll never get better.

          I am a free American. I don’t approve of our government, and probably never fully will, but instead of saying ‘let’s keep everything the same as it always was’, I say let’s move foreword with our lives, and, as you say, “take responsibility for our actions”

          I think it is “me” that needs to change, but I also think it’s “you” as well.

          If you’re so blind as to see that what you’re doing is part of the problem, then you need to open your eyes. If you’re not blind, but instead just ignorant, then you should educate yourself about what’s really going on. Also, if you’re not going to spell things correctly, please at least attempt to use spell check.

    The natural disasters of drought and wildfires are related to activities of mankind, but are not deliberately brought into happening. The basis of the man made nightmares that are descending on Americans is the Protocols. Too few in America know the TRUTH about too many things, from the entry of America into WWI to the Russian revolution to the leadership of the Cheka to the real causes of WWII. America has been totally and thoroughly infiltrated by criminals who hide behind whining and evil racism and the lust for total power and control. This is all NOT by accident. If you do not know the name of Adam Weishaupt, you know little. Self preservation in the coming years will find you only through KNOWLEDGE. Give yourself this little test: Who shot Huey Long? Who shot the Archduke Ferdinand to kick off WWI? Who led the slaughter of over 2200 Poles at Katyn, an event incorrectly blamed on Germans? Who attacked the USS Liberty in 1967, killing 34 Americans and wounding 171? Who murdered Stolypin, a man who did a lot to improve the lives of Jews in Russia before 1917? What segment of the US population represents less than 3% of the population, yet has over 10% representation in the US Senate? Who facilitated and encouraged the Maronites of Beirut in slaughtering over 800 old men, women and Children at Sabra and Shatilla?
    What country IGNORES long decades of UN Security Council Resolutions? Get acquainted with FACTS……that will greatly improve your chances of survival.

    The excellent article should be posted in every newspaper, TV and radio station.
    I have been very pleased that at last some comments are getting
    right to the point. I scan the real news daily, and it is very rare. The nation is under judgment, as mentioned above in Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26. The Eternal God Himself has declared war on the all the nations I refer to as Biblical Israel, all the 12 tribes.
    Jeremiah 21:5 And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath. We must reap what we sow. It is an unbreakable law.
    Sadly we will not learn until defeated. We cannot hide our wickedness from the Eternal God, who has never, and will never lose a war, period. Those of you who understand, and are obedient will be protected for what is yet to happen, which sadly is much worse, than what has happened so far.

      Have a plan; get out of the cities. Learn to hunt, fish, grow crops. I moved back to my small town of growing up and am learning a whole lot of things that never occurred to me before. Learn to dress, and cook what you take. Stock up on non-hybrid seeds. The list goes on… But it’s not hopeless.

    Michael,
    I am not overjoyed by Mitt either….In fact if SCOTUS had struck down Obamneycare I probably would’ve left the vote for president blank or written in Ron Paul….
    I want the Affordable Care Act to go away, far away. Romney has promised to do away with it, Obama certainly won’t. So I will hold my nose and vote for Romney. I will call,fax and write the White House along with my senators and rep in the house every day until that promise is kept. If they don’t keep that promise, then I believe that will be the end of our Gov’t….
    I have no great hopes for Romney other than that. I only know he is the only 1 running who has promised to get rid of Obamneycare…
    Too me that is enough of a distinction to get the Kenyan out of office

    • Gay Veteran

  • A.S.

    According to Jewish teaching, the one sin that is extremely hard for G-d to forgive is sexual immorality.
    1. homosexuals/lesbians/bi/trans
    2. teen sex (today it is pre-teens)
    3. cheating on your spouse
    4. sex before marriage
    5. immodest dress

    A society cannot exist without sexual purity. With that said, go investigate on your own, to see the correlation between
    sexual freedom and all the problems specified above.

    As a related matter, regarding that Walmart incident, it is not racist to state an observation: ALL of those teens were black. And I am willing to bet ALL of them are NOT virgins.

    • Gay Veteran

      so it’s extremely hard for god to forgive sexual immorality like immodest dress as opposed to murder?

      that is messed up!!!

      • Maxx

        No not at all;

        God does not discriminate: He punishes both and offers forgiveness for both. Your choice. The hard part was the Cross – for God. That, you do not have to bear.

        Good evening.

    Ron Paul is our next president – pass it on!!

    Yes, things are bad. And getting worse. But Ron Paul is going to make a big difference. Not that most Americans are not going to be feeling some pain, but it’s going to be better than if we had either Obama or Romney in office…

    so cheer up doomsters!!

    50+ million murdered (aborted) babies are crying out for justice.

    • Gay Veteran

      and how many unwanted babies have YOU adopted?

      • Maxx

        This; (Gay Veteran)

        Is a straw man argument. Unwanted babies were allowed delivery. This is also a analogous fallacy. And as a side note; My wife and I would adopt if we could financially afford it. Adoptions are notoriously expensive. This, plus the fact that after retiring 6 years ago from the military, I have been unsuccessful at finding a decent job that would finance such an endeavor. The problem is that after I graduate the university, most agencies will tell us we’re too old. But, there is hope…

        Good evening

        • Gay Veteran

          I don’t think you understand what a strawman is.

          If YOU have not adopted a single unwanted baby then YOU do not have the moral authority to comment on abortion.

          Awfully easy for YOU to enslave women to have babies when YOU refuse to adopt any.

    http://olgreyghost.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-to-really-improve-public-schools.html

    Of course, after one attends a government school one will be more likely to believe the propaganda that the people should continue to pay for the government schools…

    http://olgreyghost.blogspot.com/2009/10/revisiting-public-schools-and-property.html

    One of the funniest, and most ironic, things I remember from my high school “daze” was a politician whining that the government schools should teach that Socialism/Communism are inferior forms of government to that which we allegedly have here in America. What did he think we have here in America?

    http://olgreyghost.blogspot.com/2009/09/schoolchildren-and-president.html

    One of the original reasons that the government schools were formed in America based on the Prussian model was for the Protestants to drive Catholicism from America. Now they are being used to drive Christians and Free-minded Libertarians from America. One has got to be really careful what one asks of Caesar to do for them…

  • Gary2

    This pretty much sums up the utter stupidity of conservatives. I could not have said it better myself:

    The Bain/Romney scheme – after acquiring a solvent company, borrow heavily against its assets, throw workers under the bus, rob their pension fund (leaving taxpayers to pick-up the tab), avoid taxes by laundering profits through offshore banks, leverage company into receivership or bankruptcy, liquated all material goods, generously reward investors, destroy surrounding neighborhood/community, and skip town.

    This is eerily reminiscent of the scorched earth plan Paul Ryan envisions for America. Over two-thirds of the companies acquired by Bain are now shuddered, accounting for the loss of over 400,000 jobs and billions in profit for Romney and his parasitic cohorts. I find it incomprehensible that workingclass conservatives – in direct opposition to their own best interest – vehemently support the Bain inspired Ryan Plan (i.e., raise taxes for the bottom 98%, add to the deficit by giving more job killing/revenue draining tax cuts to cash-soaked millionaires, cut Medicare by 47%, increase local taxes, and transform the Social Security Trust Fund into slush fund for Wall Street).

    Yep conservatives–this pretty much describes YOU! Get a brain cell your 1% gods will not save you.

    • http://www.OlGreyGhost.Blogspot.com Ol’ Grey Ghost

      “This pretty much sums up the utter stupidity of conservatives.”

      And then there is the stupidity of the Liberal millionaire President and his followers as he rouses them into a feeding frenzy of how much more he can steal for them from “the forgotten man” and, at the same time, giving a wink and a nod to his billionaire puppet-masters, all the while forgetting that stealing is wrong…

      Everybody needs to drop the false Left/Right, Liberal/Conservative labels for politicians and government bureaucrats. The political spectrum is less like a number line, starting at zero and going off to the left and right unto infinity, and more like the face of a broken clock. Both hands start out at the top pointed at the twelve, which will stand for liberty, and then when they are released, the minute hand falls to the left to travel counter-clockwise down to the six and the hour hand falls to the right to end up at the same location. At the bottom we a Totalitarian Police State and that’s where all the politicians are herding us. It doesn’t matter from which direction the push comes as much as that we shouldn’t be allowing them to push us around in the first place…

    “Brace yourself. The American empire is over. And the descent is going to be horrifying.”—Chris Hedges

    Michael T. Snyder asks: “So what is going to happen if the economy goes into the toilet and unemployment skyrockets much higher than it is now? That is frightening to think about.” Yes, it certainly is. According to economic John Williams (Shadow Statistics), The REAL unemployment rate in The Banana Republic of America (the Third World slop bucket that used to be the USA) was 22.4% in December 2011. That 22.4% is much higher than the government’s bogus figures. The BRA is in a managed depression (not a recession), but it will become unmanageable—and unemployment in the BRA will go much higher than 22.4%. It could go as high as 40% or 50% or higher when all is said and done, and when that happens, get ready for the blood to flow like rivers through the streets of American cities. Violent crime will absolutely skyrocket, millions of Americans will end up in shantytown slums and favelas, and the rioting and social unrest will make the L.A. riots of 1992 look like child’s play. Cities that are already violent and dangerous will become even worse, resembling the carnage of Ciudad Juarez.

    • Guido

      You are right, Pollo. Take a look at Argentina for a view of our future. Rampant crime and kidnapping, eroding services and a decrepit infrastructure, a rapidly devaluing dollar, and the authorities only protecting tourist areas, wealthy neighborhoods, and business centers.
      For the rest of the country, it will end up being pretty ugly.
      I have to take issue with your characterization of the US as somehow being the worst. If and when the US goes down, much, possibly most, of the rest of the world will go down with it. We will, probably, be still better than the rest of the 3rd world. We still have a lot of material wealth the rest of the world doesn’t have.

      • El Pollo de Oro

        Guido: Argentina is a very good comparison because in the past, it was one of the most livable and prosperous countries in Latin America. I used to describe Argentina as one of South America’s europhile countries (along with Uruguay and Chile) because it was developed and industrialized to the point that it felt more like a country in Western Europe than a typical Latin American country. Argentina also had a strong middle class and low crime rates compared to much of Latin America. Not anymore. With the decline of Argentina’s middle class, the country isn’t nearly as safe as it used to be. Argentina can no longer pretend that shantytown slums and kidnappings are only a Venezuela problem or only a Colombia problem–they’re an Argentina problem as well.

        How Third World will the BRA become? Believe it nor not, some preppers have told me that I’m being overly optimistic when I say that the BRA will be Latin America poor–try Haiti poor or Mali poor, they say. But I honestly don’t see the BRA sinking to the level of Haiti or Sub-Saharan Africa. I see it being comparable to a very industrialized Latin American country where there is considerable wealth for a minority of the population and harsh poverty for most people. The ironic thing is that if you look at a list of the 100 poorest countries in the world, not one Spanish-speaking Latin American banana republic makes the top 100 (not even Bolivia or Guatemala). So even though I see the BRA becoming a Third World country, some Third World countries are worse than others.

        I live in Philadelphia, and I predict that in the future, the poor ghetto areas of the city will become even poorer and even more dangerous. Shantytown slums will emerge and grow exponentially. But upscale parts of Philly like Rittenhouse Square and Olde City will continue to be upscale, although businesspeople who live in those areas will need armed bodyguards to avoid being kidnapped. And that scenario I just described sounds a lot like Bogotá or Mexico City.

    “…The United States continues to get pulled into more wars….”

    Totally false. We do not get “pulled” into wars, we choose war.

      If the sentenced is tweaked a bit then it works:

    Many believers reading this know that things are not going to get better.We are in the last days and all these events we read about will lead to some type of collapse and usher in The Antichrist.His solution will be some form of a One World Government which the elite are pushing for anyway.When all hell breaks loose this supernatural man will have the solutions and the charisma to sell most of the world on his plan. The world’s elites are preparing the way for him right now as we speak and sadly dont even know that they are pawns in this spiritual battle yet to come.Scripture speaks of a time coming where people will throw their silver in the streets.This end time prophecy hopefully points to the fact that silver will be used as money on some basis,before the total collapse that immediately precedes the return of Jesus Christ.

      I think you are right.

      The EU has already introduced the notion of creating a supreme, one man position over all. (They want a king). They have grown weary of opposing arguments all demanding equal consideration and attention which is not working. There is a serious lack of leadership around the world and no one stands out. Historically, what happens in Europe tends to spill over to us. The key is watching the global centralization of power, economics, and polity. Watch Rome or Belgium, or both.

      By the time the Antichrist appears, the world will be so thirsty for a leader that they will gladly fill their goblets with his presence. And when he brings his false peace and fills the bellies of the hungry, they will offer him their goblets of adoration and allegiance.

      People really are like sheep.

      Good evening.

    God Bless America?!?

    Seems more like – God “something else” America….

    Read Deuteronomy 28. Very interesting what it looks like when God curses a nation and how striking are the similarities.

    The simple answer is this: no one with the capability to do anything cares, and those who care have no capability to do anything about it except to prepare for the worst, and hope it does not come to pass. Anyone (if there is anyone who is both) who can change our situation for the better, and cares enough to try, is tarred and feathered by the media, which passes this opinion on to the general public (who for the majority do not do their own research). Anyone who cares about this country at all (in sincerity) is branded a potential terrorist (while those who actually are potential terrorists, like illegals, are given a free pass). Our society is backwards, and all the political infighting (and the petty issues raised by the media and the government to distract us) are causing us to be disunited. Once again I will state what everybody needs to hear. No matter your race, religion, etc.; we are all Americans, and it is time we turned our degrading society around. Keep your differences near you, for those are what make us human. However, if we are to overcome this challenge, we must unite as one people, as has not been seen since WWII. We are all Americans! We need to wake up and realize this! The differing opinions of each of us used to be what made our country run, not what slow it to a halt. Let us reignite the fire and tenacity we Americans are known for when cornered, for we are cornered. It is time we replace those corrupt politicians, reinstate the constitution, and re-embrace the morals and values which have governed us for generations. Our system was not broken, it worked fine. Things went haywire when the politicians decided it needed “fixing”. We are all Americans. We need to wake up and do what’s best for our country, not just what”s best for ourselves. As JFK famously said “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

    America, along with most European nations are being punished as they should, cause they’ve turned their back on God. Hell, they don’t even remember who they truly are. They were blessed as nations cause they were supposed to be as Israel in the Bible was supposed to be. The TRUE Israel, the 12 tribes of Israel whose name used to be Jacob. There are numerous scriptures where Israel, is to be a great nation, a company of great nations, multiply as the sands of the sea, numbered as the stars in heaven, to settle the isles and coastlines of the world. What countries would qualify with those stipulations? Think about it.

    It boggles my mind that most Christians will proclaim that United States has no place in prophetic scriptures. We were the greatest nation to ever be on this planet because of our blessing. When you stray from the One that blesses you, you will be punished. Period.

    If you truly take the time to learn who the true Israel people’s are, your Bible will make much more sense to you. 1948 caused a lot of issues with the prophetic Bible, and this was by design. Most Christians assume that the country of Israel formed in 1948, is the actual name Israel in the Bible. This is horribly skewed, as they may have a small portion of the tribe of Judah residing there, but that is all.

    Yahweh, and the Savior, Yahshua Messiah, along with Yahweh’s Plan were, in fact, prophesied to be rejected until proven True, then men’s minds will change. But now we are facing a horrible time period of prophesied tribulations that will destroy four-fifths of the earth’s population. This is being brought about by those who reject the Plan of Yahweh.

    The first thing I want to say, is that those of us who have not sold our souls to evil do not wish to survive on this ‘planet of the zombies’ that Earth has become. Waking zombies up has proven to be impossible to do. Articles like this are read only by those of us who have always done their own thinking and knew all along that something was seriously wrong with what we were being led to believe about our existence.

    That said, Why is so much going wrong in every which way for Americans? (actually worldwide) The answer is this: Because enough of us seem to believe that only the wealthy are smart and deserve to become even more wealthy at the expense of those they consider inferior.

    America was the last bastion to be destroyed because it was used as one of the bases of operation by the ruling families on the planet to direct its evil seduction to greed in all directions; of course with the assistence of those easily seduced into greed and avarice and easily brainwashed into believing they are entitled to anything they can extract from those they consider lesser human beings than themselves; mostly avaricious, deluded people who easily believe God is on their side no matter how many wars they are willing to fight in. This is the type of people who can easily overlook the clues when those who are pillaging imperialistically are doing it subtlely. Well, now that the corporate, imperial agenda has been realized and they have control of all our institutions, and means of production and distribution; plus control of the weather; and with their vaccines and GMOs, over life and death itself,along with the greatest military might that has ever been mustered in the history of the world, what was once subtle has become overt and easy to see when the balance between being able to pull out of our situation or being destroyed has tipped.

    Now it can be seen by the discerning eye that the rats in the rat race of the Am. Dream are still jockying for position in the ‘New World Order’ which is not new at all but the same old game of greedy grasping for one’s own tiny ledge of privilege to stand on, no matter how many asses one has to kiss or who gets knocked off by one’s own scrambling and/or obsequious moves.These are the real slaves because they offer themselves up willingly to the ruling elites.The rest of us are enslaved against our wishes.

    Willing slaves will never evolve out of the worst human nature has to offer unless it developes true spirituality; not the pseudo form that’s available through organized religions and other institutions controlled by the ruling elites to keep the masses brainwashed and thus malliable for the needs of the ruling elites who have ruled for the past 6,000 years. God gave us free will; the ruling elites do all it their power to take it away from us.

    Those who do think for themselves have the least chance of surviving in the conditions created by the ruling elites because we are picked off one by one always, and those of us who have remained ‘below the radar’ as they say, will be destroyed along with the mass of humanity that has become superfluous to the rulers now that they have accomplished their agenda of world government. And no one , at this last stage, should make the mistake of not believing it is already a reality. It is.

    These ruling elites want the land for themselves that we “useless eaters” are standing upon; to use as their wonderland vacation spots once it has been renewed into the pristine form their technology can bring it to. They plan for most of the land now known as North America to be a gigantic Bohemian Grove playground for themselves. What is seen all around us is deliberately allowed to happen and is even nudged along from the shadows; like the deterioration of our superstructure. No need to alarm the herd which seems at all times seems to desire an unruffled brow even if reality must be avoided.

    Do I sound cynical? Jaded? You bet! Paranoid? Not if there really exists those who are ‘out to get us’ and everything we have earned by diligent, hard work.

    America is not in trouble because we turned our back on God. America is in trouble because of secrecy. God is not causing the havoc that is happening to America it is God’s opposite who is causing the havoc. People in America are waking up to all the programming and mind control. The bonds of secrecy are being lifted. A very negative force has been in control of this world for eons so now by way of the Internet and Freedom of Speech a real ‘ change ‘ is happening. Use your head think! If you were negative, greedy, and wanted it all and suddenly all the control you had to get everything you wanted disappeared as a negative force wouldn’t you try to punish the ones that caused the desperately needed ‘ change.’

    God did not make Robots out of us. When I saw him he told me ‘ he gave his daughter all the tools she would need.’ He gave us all the tools we need to beat the negative force. He is not going to fight our battle against the negative for us. We have to do it and that is why havoc is happening because we are ‘ waking up’ from the programming. The number one program is religion. If you want the real creator on your side start believing in yourself. The second organization that creates havoc like religion is Governments that keep secrets from the people they govern. Like who is flying the UFO’s and who is laying the Chemtrails. If you are looking for evil ones in this world think about who flies the UFO’s and lay the Chemtrails.

    WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO THE U.S ???? BECAUSE WE SAID TO GOD ” WE DO NOT NEED YOU OR WANT YOU ANYMORE””!!! SO GOD SAYS
    NOW, OKEEDOKEE!!! SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO WITHOUT ME !!!!!!!! AND HOW ARE WE DOING !!!! WE ARE SO STUPID. WE GOT WHAT WE
    DESERVED IN OUR LEADERSHIP. ZIPPO!!!! WE ARE GOING DOWN!!!!! WE NEED TO SAY TO HIM WE ARE SORRY, BUT SOME OF US ARE STUBBORN AND PRIDEFUL, STARTING WITH THAT PRESIDENT!! WE THINK IT IS OUR DUTY AND RIGHT TO HAVE THE FREEDOM TO KILL OUR OWN SPECIES, IN BIGGER AND BETTER WAYS. HOW ARROGANT! WE DESERVE WHAT WE ARE GETTING NOW AND MORE HARDSHIP WILL COME , UNTIL WE TURN BACK TO HIM AND SAY, ” WE ARE SORRY, WE ARE WRONG. GOD HELP US , GOD SAVE US FROM THE REST TO COME. AS FOR ME I HAVE ONLY ONE KING, GOD ALMIGHTY, HIS SON , JESUS, AND THE BLESSED MOTHER THAT WILL GET MY DEVOTION.

    • rani

      Ann, You are sooo right but all we need to do for eternal life with Jesus is to tell him we are sorry of our sins and to come into our lifes.Some still will go through this for we are of this world but GOD will win in the end and those who says there is no GOD, or a loving GOD would not do this is partly right, GOD is also a GOD of justisc and made a way of es
      cape though His Son, JESUS CHRIST!!!!!

  • Nathan Nigel Havers

    Why is this happening? Why all of the bad things at once: sure there is evil in the world, a Satanic conspiracy and onslaught, but if we the people were not so weak and debased we could fight back and win.

    50 million abortions

    Drugs

    Taking God out of public life

    Weapons sales

    Depleted Uranium all over Iraq and Central Asia

    Darwin: a tadpole crawled out of the lake and turned into a butterfly and a koala and a kangaroo. This is our state religion. Who believes this baloney? Is a dog changing into a cat? Are apes carrying a briefcase to work? Sharks and gators are unchanged for millions of years. Is radioactive decay “evolving” or devolving? Complex compounds came from simple compounds? In the beginning there was nothing which promptly exploded? Sure … Order from chaos? Sure … (Darwin and Abortion are the twin pillars which must be first toppled to save Western Man from his fate).

    New Age/Occult

    Taking Jesus’ name in vain/spitting in God’s face/not reading the Bible and obeying its call to repent, be pure, fix our past, help others, find redemption, sanctification … There is a war on all the is holy and pure in this country. (That which remains, like abstinence education for teens … God forbid … and God forbid if that last open abortion clinic in Mississippi should close. Those evil people in Mississippi are sure making it hard to kill their babies … what’s wrong with them?)

    Joel Osteen celebrity preachers and money changers

    Betrayal of allies: Hmong, Afrikaners, Karen, Rhodesia, UNITA on and on ad nauseum

    Madison Avenue

    MTV values

    Hollywood (they do have some good films, Cinderella Man for example)

    Retarded celebrities

    Cutting up our bodies with tattoos, piercings, abortion …

    Worship of Alan Greenspan and the 1999 Summer or Corporate Love morons that raped our banks and financial system.

    Trading a healthy economy for key industries: weapons, porn, exotic financial products, Big Pharma, Big Oil, drugs and other segments of hi tech, AI, robotics, avionics, medicine, cloning, fetal tissue …

    Public Schools = Heather has two mommies, saluting the UN flag, condoms on bananas

    30 million illegals
    46 million on food stamps
    100 million without a job
    50 million can’t read
    30 million on anti psychotic medications
    50 million aborted as noted + sell the body parts (craven, Nazi)

    You get the point … I could go on but Michael does the best job of listing all of the problems and providing the links.

    Michael has become one of the most important journalists in the world.

    Americans, and in particular white Christians, are the most pathetic and craven people on Earth. There is no resistance to this great onslaught of evil because our men are not men. What kind of a man sends women into combat? The TSA and military evil is carried out in large part by fat white men with no clue, desperate for a niche because white men have been kicked to the curb. So they pretend to be John Wayne and kill Muslims and terrorize ordinary Americans.

    We hate Muslims because they don’t like drugs, abortion and porn and don’t want their daughters to be ho-ed out trolls in gang clothes, listening to filthy music and slutting it up all over the show. Period.

    Fathers, men, sons and brothers are the problem. When God hands over a society to women and children, you know God cannot find righteous men to lead. This is a judgment in and of itself.

    Our leaders are sick because the nation is sick in its soul. If we had to fight World War II today we would lose and be speaking Japanese and German.

    There is a nuclear wasteland of fire and radioactivity beyond the moral wasteland.

    If we are smart we should be praying and spiritually preparing for what is to come: BP, Secret Service in Colombia, lost wars, Goldman Sachs, movie theater shooting, open borders, Katrina, Rita … these are merely the signs of how the integrity of the people and the system has totally collapsed. People are monsters addicted to porn and drugs and booze and violent video games. America is a moral joke. Has there ever been a people more unworthy of their own history? Tell me who? Ancient Rome? 1990’s Afrikaners? Catholic Priests? Modern Republican Party? Who else?

    This is the paradise the 1969 Woodstock Generation promised us … just take a look around.

    Please enough about God, as you belive that is ok, but he does not exist, as you think a god exists, you cannot comprehend a god, if you can explain the evoulution of man to a ant, and it understands, that is what is. how we understand what is god is written by men ( and why not woman ). We just don’t know. But otherwise a very truthful article

  • http://StanDeyo Bernadine

    WHY??? Because America and the world for that matter, is under the Judgment of the Lord. The signs of the article you read is there for anyone to see who has clear spiritual vision. Not only that, but as you scroll down, on the left hand side, you will see the name of a book “The Harbinger.” I purchased the book and it tells why America is under Judgment. The Judgment comes from the very mouth of the so-called leaders of this society. It began on September 11, 2001, with the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York. It continued with the economic collapse in 2008 of the bailout of the banks. The bailout was (7) years after 2001. Now, 26 states are in a drought, the likes of which have not been seen for approximately 50 years (assuming we have been told the truth about that.) People need to take their heads out of the sand and realize the Lord is trying to wake people up. If you even talk to people about what the Lord is doing, you are labeled a “religious fanatic.” WHY?? Because people are conditioned to believe only in their earthly materialistic pleasures. What they can do to please the flesh. That is all life is to them and they are not concerned about Life After This Life. What about your soul? Where will you spend eternity? That is, if you can even get anyone to believe there is a life after this one. Jesus said it is a life after this one. Does anyone believe JESUS? A famous writer, I forgot his name said: Who knows if what we call life is actually death and what mortals call death is actually life. I realize a lot of people are frowning at what I have written but let me end this by saying to you: For those who believe in the Lord, no explanation is necessary and for those who do not, no explanation is possible. I have penned my thoughts on paper because I am tired of hiding my head in the sand and I want to speak out for the Lord whom I love and follow everyday of my life, hoping to enter His kingdom when all of this is said and done.

  • Dave

    I would higly reccomend that everyone read David Brennan- The Israel Omen 1 and Israel Omen II. I think that it will shed some light on this subject. It is not only America that is under Judgement but the whole of the World Powers.

  • http://christnotreligion.blogspot.com DL.

    Plenty of folks on here suggest reading the Bible. Good idea, but please discern it spiritually guided by the Holy Spirit and not carnality (for instance, why are so many on here clamoring for the “end times” or “great tribulation” when Christ Himself said “do not look for signs”? And while you’re at it, if you are going to read a Bible make sure it isn’t the Scofield Reference Bible, written by a crook who ripped off his family, abused his wife and kids, and was funded by Herzl and the Zionists in Europe to write a Bible that focuses not on Christ but re-establishing physical, not spiritual, Israel…the kind of Godless Israel we have today, which in the Old Testament days became an abomination to God (which is why He scattered it, correct?). How do I know today’s Israel is Godless? First of all, look at how the present-day Pharisees (Talmudists) treat Jewish Christians there, let alone Palestinian ones…the spitting, the vandalism of churches, and other forms of persecution. Don’t believe me? Then read about Zvi Kalisher, a Messianic Jew in Israel, sometime, and how (despite his service during the Yom Kippur and 6-day war) he is considered an “enemy” of Jews and is attacked for it.

    I tender the indisputable observation that our materially driven life is a threat to the spiritual of our existence and thus lead humanity away from worship of God, service to humanity, loyalty to family, obedience to authority, and management of God’s creation. Having said this, I would like to recommend the reading of © 2011 Five Foundations of Human Development by Errol A. Gibbs and Philip A. Grey (www.ffhdwritersinc.com). It is a blueprint for human survival as a viable species, with ‘hope’ and ‘optimism’ for the twenty-first century and the new millennium. It is not merely a prescription for America, but for our world.

    I particularly agree that when a nation turns away from God, because of its material progress, it will fall into the trap of self sufficiency and fall victim to the illusion of self-sufficiency. I prefer to propose solutions to America’s dilemma, but we must extend the argument beyond American shores, and ask: “Why so many bad things happening to the world? American troubles are not unique. She has the greatest capacity to report on her troubles, and has great visibility as a nation. She has over extended herself as the liberator of nations, when in fact all she had to be was be the greatest example to nations by exercising sacrificial fairness, justice, mercy, reparation, and technological apathy. Inside everyone there is an American, so the world could have been American. In almost every country we can find terrible happenings that statisticians can consider the worst in history, therefore there is a bigger issue with the state of humanity. Lamentably, though, I believe that America’s decline is inevitable, like past empires, she did not learn from history. Nevertheless, she can be revived (2 Chronicles 7:14).

    Actually, the problem is that Christians don’t take any responsibility for they’re OWN actions. They say that it’s all someone else’s fault.

Our country is going to crap because you vote for whoever panders to your “Christian values”, which apparently means raping the planet and each other to death. *********** you all, you get what you deserve. Hell, is what you created here on earth, deal with it, or make it better, but stop blaming others.

    • jesussays

      No.. actually Christ taught us that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. We ALL need forgiveness and we ALL need Jesus’ perfect sinless blood to cleanse us. Much like HIV does to the body of those infected sin has destroyed our spiritual bodies. Christ is sin free hence our need for his blood. Also beware what Jesus taught about FALSE Christs and FALSE doctrines. He said through one of the Apostles that even Satan can make himself to appear as an angel of light. He has the power to deceive the nations and many are being deceived by him and his deceitfulness is so great he has deceived himself and others into thinking he is God. He said if it were possible the very elect (those who belong to Christ) would be deceived except those days be shortened (rapture) and for their sake they shall be shortened (true Christians, not pretenders, will be gathered together/raptured out of this world to be spared the horror of God’s wrath and the great battle of God vs Satan which is where God does what everyone wants and rids all evil from creation). Don’t be deceived… one of the most overlooked commandments from Jesus. not arguing just don’t want true Christians blamed for fakers. I would elaborate but this text is slow causing problems typing.

    The fact is that the items listed above are no more severe than at any other time in our history and in most cases less. It is the enhancing these problems and convincing people that hope is lost plays into the control agenda of certain groups. People must begin to help themselves,it is true that because of some conditions that not all types of goods will be available,so suck it up. It is not that many years ago that our ancestors were carving out a place in the wilderness that was North America. Did they have all they desired,did they do without and substitute what they could and did they not survive if not flourish. Americans need to get off their soft @$$E$ and come to realize that life requires work some sacrifice and innovation. If you are ready to lay down and die because of some set backs please do so now so that those of us who wish move forward are not hindered by your useless presence. There is no good life there is no bad life there is only life then death make the most of the time you are given and stop whining.

    I am an Indonesian, on my opinion all nations has its destiny that bring it up and down. American suffer because support Israel to kill palestinian people, woman and children. Bombing Iraq and Afghanistan looking for nothing, capturing their land and destroy their home. These homeless people, widows and orphans ask God to revenge than God send tornado and Supersandy to destroy all buildings like heavy bomber, rockets and misile attacks. Send brutal and mad man to attack, kill the children and people anywhere without any reason. This is God warnings, stop support Israel, they had killed Jesus.

    I believe because of what went down with the Vietnam war so many years ago. People once believed in “GOD” and the government but after Vietnam things changed. America went from being “CLEAN” cut, hard working, decent, God fearing, familiy oriented country to a “LACKS”, Liberal, crap hole. You can’t allow people to just “SHACK” up with NO morals and just keep having babies. Welfare also got in the way and made generation after generation much lazier, with little or NO desire to work hard anymore. The Vietnam war and the “HIPPIE” generation introduced the United States to the “DRUG” world and that has really messed things up. How many young people today have littler or NO interest in working hard and just want to sit around smoking “WEED” and doing nothing? I’m not saying everyone but the numbers are astonishing. If things don’t change, America is going down.

    Bill Peevyhouse Gods Holy word 2nd Chronicles 7:14 If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land. Pretty simple & easy to understand it is only talking about christian people that need to do this. This is the answer to our problems

    People need religion, a country needs a religion to hold onto.

    I think Obama is the master mind behind all of these horrible tragedies. He’s declared war on the American people the Boston bombing is just the start. He wants to launch unmanned drones strikes against us. He wants a tyrannical government with him being the dictator. That’s why he’s been trying to take our guns away from the law abiding citizens of this country. But he fails to realize that the criminals are not buying there guns from gun stores or sporting goods stores . They are getting them from black market arms dealers out of the trunk of a gun runners car in the city back ally

  • james

    If Obama wants a civil war we’ll give them one and we will stand up and fight tooth and nail before we let them take our guns

    Just destroy America , and rebuild it into another country that satisfy everyone, the idea of a nation is overrated. The term nation means what ? Right now we are a divided nation , we need to destroy America and built a new nation with new common heritage and common ideals that is suitable to defend and sacrifice for the future . That’s the meaning of a nation.

    I agree with the last guy, who is just a guy. What happened to God following Americans who defied empires(4-5) and stood up for what was right and just. Now this new guy we have as a national leader legalizes homosexuality in every way possible, abandons men on the battlefield, makes new enemies and makes friends with the allies of our enemies, spends money like a celeb, and so many more things even an uneducated man wouldn’t do in office. I hate that i cant do enough to prevent more bad things from happening.

      and besides from politics, look at the next generation. Sex, drug and alcohol addicted, some to lazy to work, standing for abortion and same sex marriage and other things the were viewed as evil only a decade ago.

      Don’t forget how other countries are doing the same stuff we are doing, some even worse.

    This is just a couple of questions I’m putting out there. I would say a hell lot more, but I doubt any of that would stay within a proper ‘PG’ rating. Seriously, what the hell America? I had dreams! Dreams of which people could actually live happily and do what they want with the right hard work and honesty I was raised to believe America still had. I sort of now doubt we have any of that left now. And now I know I’m going to grow up knowing none of them will come true!
    The first question is this: what do you think it will be when America begins falling apart, and what do you believe the cause will be? I’m saying, either we end up screwing our relations with another country and get shot down, our own country implodes through civil war, or, we end up destroying ourselves via economy, nuclear fallout, and, of course, our countries weight issues.
    Either way, here’s the next question: Does anyone have any speculation of what exact time, year, day, or event in which America first took a step on the road to going to hell? I say it was around George W. Bush’s presidency, where we actually listened to this piece of garbage, and ended up raising our debt, and slaughtered other countries under the “supported” claim that (I’m sorry I forgot the countries’ name.) had weapons of mass destruction, yet in reality we were reaching for the oil of that country. (I’m not sure if it was just oil, but I’m not completely sure what else it would be.)

    GOD never told us we need a religion…GOD never said for us to separate in spirit and belief….again we mix false with true…mix spirit with flesh…people have not turned from GOD….they never noticed him….if people who claim to be men and woman….they sell there value on the inside for the value of the outside…for so long….we are lost….good always overlaps the evil….the only question is….how will we win the good ol’ fight once again?….Religion separates us from being one as a whole in spiritual energy…they say whatever you give is what you shall receive…so if so…..then all this horror spread around the world..then something is to come! ready yourself for our costly mistakes…fight as a whole unit …..JUST FROM GOD…..no religion…just one unit….we will win….at times you think you win, you lose somehow in the long run….but as if you think you lose you win..so if you are of truth…if you are of faith…then just believe…thats all that was asked to the many things that was told…..wake up time will soon be over…..soon it will be get up time….we will find who is true and who is not…for all the trouble we have been through….hopefully GOD allows us to witness his wrath yet to come..and not have us be one with it….BlesstoAll

    America and britian will be in control of financial system of the new world order. china and 2nd world countries will contribute with slave labor.
